(Part 1): Theory and video sessions The theory and video sessions take place in our custom-built air conditioned classroom. There are 5 modules of theory and subsequently 5 videos for each module. Each PADI Rescue Diver video can take between 45 -60 minutes to watch. We recommend to watch the first of the PADI Rescue Diver videos in the evening before the start of the course and in this way they can free up the workload for the following day. Each module is proceeded by a discussion with our PADI Instructor and the study sessions are checked with the use of pop quizzes, or multiple choice quizzes to help monitor the students progress and understanding of the material. The following day we shall start around 8 AM and complete the theory sessions.Did you know that you can complete the PADI Rescue Diver theory in advance by using PADI’s eLearning classes available at PADI’s website? Please see here for more information
(Part 2): Confined Water Training
Confined Water Rescue scenarios will be conducted from the beach Each skill is carefully explained by the diving instructor and then demonstrated by the instructor, so the student may feel confident that they can perform the skill themselves. Just like the theory and video sessions, there are 5 confined water training modules.
(Part 3): Open Water Dives
To perform open water rescue scenarios we shall make a dive to trip to the Cozumel Reefs. Between two fun dives various open water rescue scenarios will be conducted. You’ll have to be on your toes here because you never know when the scenarios may occur!. Each fun dive is approximately an hour long and there is a light lunch and refreshments provided between the dives.
